Carpentry Instructor Marshall Janifer was a dedicated CTE teacher,
mentor, guidance counselor and role model for students in the Academy
of Construction and Design at Cardozo Education Campus. He often
said his proudest achievement was motivating students to want to
become decent human beings and successful adults. The Marshall Janifer
